We were able to stop at six wineries on our one-day excursion SW of Portland, and the Ponzi winery was "the winner." Very nice tasting room, wonderful views, great wines, and some good charcuterie.

We were greeted by Sara whom I found to be very knowledgable, warm and friendly. There are a variety of tasting options which more than met our expectations. The pictures of the Ponzi daughters working in the vineyard at a very early age tells a compelling story of how this great winery was built from the humblest of beginnings. Ask... More

We brought 27 friends and family here and all had a wonderful time - our guide was hilarious and engaging, the samples were very generous and our quadruplet cousins loved the bocci ball court. Good times.

We stopped here immediately after leaving the airport in our rental vehicle. The beautiful view and facility was reminiscent of the Gary Farrell winery in Sonoma. Pourers were fun, and we had a delightful time watching couples playing bocce ball on one of the 2 courts. Our group purchased a case of the chard they were pouring. This says something,... More

Was at the Ponzi Winery for a corporate event. Can't say enough good things about the place. Lovely setting, beautiful building, great hosts and services, excellent food (especially for a large group) and of course, excellent wines. If I had one complaint I would say that if you are there for a large event, the bathrooms get a little busy... More

Gorgeous building, landscaping, and views. There are two tasting to choose from; both contain whites and reds. The first is the standard, the second contains less pours but more expensive wine. This is an extremely relaxing venue both indoors and out. Indoors there are tables, sofas, a large fireplace, and a private room. Outdoors there is a covered veranda with... More

So we've been to Sonoma, Napa, NY State, Washington, etc. and the new Ponzi winery was one of the very nicest. A fantastic view for miles and miles. Jeff Mathews was a great host, and Rachel was also very gracious. We totally enjoyed the wine and had an antipasto to go with. Highly recommended.

The new tasting room offers contemporary architecture and amazing views. We were previous members at Ponzi, and wanted to check out the new tasting room. WOW what an upgrade from the Historic tasting room (granted we loved the closest to Portland location and old charm). The new tasting facility has definitely elevated Ponzi to a more chic strata. Whether you... More

Recently constructed in a very modern taste is Ponzi's spectacular tasting room. The environment is very tastefully decorated and is an excellent use of open outdoor space. The wines speak for themselves as, in my opinion, they are extraordinary. I do not drink white wine but am pleased to say the four levels of Pinot Noir we sampled were very... More

The Historic Estate location is quite nice, well appointed, spacious and comfortable. The wines from Ponzi are consistently excellent even with a higher price point. But the tasting of 7 wines was sparse and barely enough poured for a second sip. Then the ask was for $27! Are you kidding me? This is the most outrageous pricing I have encountered... More
